    How about introducing files download, links and hidden posts visibility restrictions for new and/or inactive members?

    It should be a restriction limit of 10-20 useful post and received likes, so 1-2 post members can not grab everything and just leave.

    Thatís minimum unfair Iím the one who is just grab and go just because some of your discussions are a bit sophisticated. And on another hand iím just researching forum only when something is not working.You guys were sharing a lot of useful things, thatís will be really pity to lose access to that. You should keep sharing your knowledgeís and solutions!

    No, that's not unfair.
    And I generally agree with the need for a certain number of posts to give permission. True, this will lead to the initial spamming of newcomers, but we are here to trash.
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.

    Spamming of newcomers is prevented by likes. No XX number of Likes (Received) = no access. I don't know the best formula, but minimum 10 post and 20 likes would make spamming impossible.

    Will not happen.
    Can't see a link/attachment? Don't post asking why. Just 'Like' the post & hit F5:
    THE LIKE BUTTON IS NOW IN THE BOTTOM LEFT HAND CORNER
    Posts serving no purpose like thanks or to ask about links go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or are deleted, it's GPS Power policy.

    Because of many reasons.
    First is that in almost all situations people are giving Likes only when they are forced to be able to get download link.
    So, for many "newbies" it would be "Mission impossible" to collect Likes just to be able to download something they need.
    And then they will be forced to protect (hide) their complete post just to collect Likes they needed, and so on.
    In circle ...

    All this would lead only to reducing number of members.

    Some members did hide complete posts (without download links) just to get more Likes, but I don't see them on forum any more, for very long time.

    Protecting download with forcing to give Like to get link(s) or other part of post is just enough.
